The MoU with Tubitak Sage, the Defense Industries Research and Development Institute of Turkey is aimed to produce and market a smart rack with enhanced capabilities for NATO aircraft, including international F-16 fighters and other strategic and unmanned platforms.

These systems support safe, reliable carriage and release of stores and payloads on a wide range of U.S. and international military platforms.
